Making sense out of Live8

Via Yahoo!News:
"cultural gap may be too wide to cross for many American blacks. "
-They have their issues too, I'll say.

But the gap is not limited to African Americans, many Africans are not in unison on this matter either- critisicm abound over the Blogoshere among African bloggers, and this is fine. However, Live8 will generate a more positive impact if we, Africans, focus on the positive energy generated by the concert. It is really easy to be arm-chair critics, and this applies to me too by my statement: "...So to set these unfortunate ones free of bondage, we must party hard, and sing and dance into the wee hours of the morning? Will this entertainment package really bring peace to the multitude of displaced and war-wary Africans?...", but it is a dauting task to organize and execute!
